Godolphin Unveil Promising Viridine

By Brad Gray

The Godolphin training operation capped a tumultuous week by unveiling a promising two-year-old by the name of Viridine in the opener at Rosehill on Saturday.

The son of Poet’s Voice had impressed in two trials and was heavily supported with TAB Fixed Odds all week before jumping a $5 chance.

Viridine would have been unlucky if he didn't get the verdict

“He was very good. He had a tricky run in the straight but once he got the opening he hit the line really well,” said Godolphin representative Paul Reid.

“Maybe he’ll find his way to Queensland. We’ve always had an opinion of him and he showed today he has got good ability. He’ll definitely improve a lot too as he is quite a gross horse.”

It was an eventful victory for Rory Hutchings who had the colt tucked in behind the leaders before shoving his way clear and nabbing Envy Of All in the tightest of photos. He then was tossed off Viridine coming back to scale.

“He just shied underneath me and straight off the side I went,” Hutchings explained.

“He is a very exciting horse. He was a little bit above himself today. He jumped well and wanted to get up on the bridle and I had to fight him to get him travelling again. Coming to the turn I was all dressed up and nowhere to go. I had a lap full of horse. He forced his way out and really attacked the line.”

“I was praying I got there because I knew I would have copped an earful if I didn’t.”
